Where it all began

Starting at the early age of 16 years old to study and practice mechanics in the automotive industry, Jamie was always intrigued by the performance and competition of the motorsports industry. Combining this with his infatuation with motorcycles through all his teenage years, led him to motorcycle performance and competition. In Jamie’s first years of working on racing motorcycles he and his riders were winning races on the Canadian national circuit, with riders as Jordan Szoke, Linnely Clark and Francis Martin.

 

From Canada to the USA

Acquiring top level engine building skills and a desire to elevate his competition propelled him to move to the United States to work on the AMA circuit, where he competed with the worlds best tuners, riders and teams.

On his first year on the circuit, Jamie was the exclusive super sport mechanic of future American Champion Jake Zemke . Working for a private team where funding is limited, they still managed to consistently beat factory supported team riders, they even claimed a first position and some podiums throughout the year. Following that up with working with 2 time Australian Champion Marty Craggill, he developed and competed again with America’s best while dealing with a new and undeveloped model of motorcycle, garnering some respectable results throughout the season.

 

The youngest Crew Chief of the Circuit Lead his team to win the Team of the Year Award

After achieving impressive results in the United States, Jamie returned to his Canadian roots where he took on the position of crew chief for a private Canadian Team.

After one year of reentering the series, he led the team to 2 National Championships with Francis Martin and Steve Crevier, both multi-time Canadian champions.

Along with this accomplishment the team was awarded ‘Team of the Year’ with the Inside Motorcycles award. An incredible accomplishment for such a young crew chief.
